Paczki

2016

People may not agree on how to pronounce them, but all are gathering to gobble up Paczki on Fat Tuesday, the day before Ash Wednesday. Immigrants of Poland pronounce them "Pooch-key" or "Punch-key" or even "Poonch-key", all are correct.

These round, sugar coated, fruit-filled Polish pastries were served up aHey Vern ... You Are Stepping On My Toes!nnually on the day before Lent, a period of abstinence observed by Roman Catholics. Originally, Paczki were made for practical reasons; to use up the lard and eggs which were prohibited during lent. Now, they're more of a last-minute binge of sweets before the sacrifice. What ever the past, all enjoy the tasty treat of Paczki, which means "little package" in Polish.

The new world version, like the olYoungest Paczki Eater Ever!d, is an extra large dough ball, rich in egg yolks and deep fried, just like a donut. It's overfilled with raspberry, custard, lemon, or the traditional prune filling. Then it's topped with a smooth sugar glaze or rolled in fine granulated sugar. It's 100% quality or it's not a Paczki! And don't ask about calories; you just don't want to know.
